How to Hypnotise a Shark

For those of you of a certain age, you'll remember Max Walker's "How to Hynotise Chooks and other Great Yarns " but how about hypnotising sharks? Well that's exactly what model Cristina Zenato appears to do in this clip filmed by Joe Romeiro.

Christina Zenato is a renowned shark expert who works in the shark-infested waters of the Bahamas and she is known as 'the Shark Whisperer' and puts the ocean's fiercest predators in a trance simply by rubbing their noses.

When a shark is under her spell, Zenato can lift it up and manipulate it into whatever position she wants in the almost weightless environment. She can even make the shark stand on its nose!But for Zenato, hypnotizing sharks is not just a clever trick; she actually uses her powers to give medical aid to the sharks.

Growing up in and around the water, Joe Romeiro developed a love for the ocean at a young age. After seeing his first shark when he was just 5 years old, he has been captivated by them ever since. A self-taught filmmaker, he founded 333 Productions in 2007 with fellow producer & shark conservationist Bill Fisher. Since then, 333 Productions has created four award-winning films, "Silent Requiem", "Death of a Deity", "A Lateral Line" and "Shark Culture".
